Building Code Resources

Getting a building permit for an alternative building project will
take some research and personal involvement with local building
officials who have the authority to approve alternative materials,
designs and methods of construction.

To improve the chances of success when submitting your application
for an alternative building project, include references to similar
projects that have been granted building permits and are located as
close to yours as possible.
